Abstract:

Present experiment was carried out in the Experimental Farm, Department of Horticulture, School of Agricultural Sciences and Rural Development, Nagaland University, Medziphema Campus during 2014-15 and 2015-16 to study the response of various sources of nutrients in gladiolus production. The experiment was laid out in RBD with 14 treatments and 3 replications. The treatments were T0 (Control), T1 (FYM 40 t ha-1), T2 (Pig manure 35 t ha-1), T3 (Vermicompost 10 t ha-1), T4 (NPK 100% RDF i.e. 200:200:200 kg NPK ha-1); T5 (Azospirillum + Phosphotica), T6 (50% NPK + 50% FYM), T7 (50% NPK + 50% Pig manure), T8 (50% NPK + 50% Vermicompost), T9 (50% NPK + Azospirillum + Phosphotica), T10 (75% NPK + Azospirillum + Phosphotica), T11 (50% NPK + 25% FYM + Azospirillum + Phosphotica), T12 (50% NPK + 25% Pig manure + Azospirillum + Phosphotica) and T13 (50% NPK + 25% Vermicompost + Azospirillum + Phosphotica). Pooled data revealed that T11 exhibited better result with respect to plant height (108.55 cm) and leaves plant-1 (9.63). T12 recorded higher leaf area (130.56 cm2), minimum days to spike emergence (68.72) and opening of first floret (78.36), maximum length of spike (88.76 cm) and rachis (48.84 cm), more diameter of floret (10.33 cm) and florets spike-1 (15.58), longer durability of spikes (19.42 days) and spikes plant-1 (1.48).
